Exceptional performance in fundraising earned Choate Rosemary Hall a 2018 CASE Excellence in Educational Fundraising Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). While 83 colleges and universities received CASE Excellence in Educational Fundraising distinctions in 2018, only 8 high schools were selected. Choate was selected within its appropriate peer group, "Independent Schools with Endowments up to 500 Million." Judges recognized schools for overall performance and significant program growth across three years of data submitted to the Voluntary Support of Education survey and based on these demonstrated criteria: "solid program growth, breadth in the base of support, and other indications of a mature, well-maintained program."
For the period of July 1, 2014-June 30, 2017, Choate demonstrated continued growth with contributions totaling $69,636,207 including a total of more than $18 million for the Annual Fund. Though the award only considered gifts through the end of fiscal 2017, it is important to note that Choate's community of donors topped these years by contributing more than $38 million in 2017-18, the single best fundraising year in the School's history.
Choate was the recipient of this award in 2012, at the tail end of the School's largest capital campaign in its history.
